The Unit is designed to enable candidates to know, understand and apply the basic concepts of digital electronics. It provides candidates with an opportunity to develop the knowledge and skills to be able to design and construct logic circuits to meet a design brief. On completion of the Unit candidates should be able to:
Produce truth tables and associated Boolean expressions for logic gates; Design combinational logic circuits using minimisation techniques; Describe the operation of sequential logic circuits, Construct logic circuits.
Candidates should have a basic knowledge of digital electronic engineering. This may be evidenced by possession of the following National Qualification courses: C027 12 Electronics, C025 11 Electronic and Electrical Fundamentals at Intermediate 2 or the following National Qualification Units: E9S3 04 Combinational Logic, E9SG 12 Sequential Logic and E9SB 12 Logic Families and Digital System Analysis.
